The Dubai Mall

Bastakia (Old Dubai)
After starting off your Sydney to Dubai trip with a view of what modern Dubai has to offer, the visit to the city should continue with the exploration of its history.

A tour of The Bastakia will offer you a glimpse into the ingenuity of old Persians as some houses had wind towers, primitive structures which provided an effect similar to that of modern air conditioners.

Departing from Sydney Airport (SYD)

Getting to Sydney Airport (SYD)

For travellers seeking more convenience you may opt for a taxi or Uber, a service which will cost you slightly more than AUD 50.
Parking at Sydney Airport
The Kingsford Smith has made sure to provide substantial parking for anyone travelling from Sydney to Dubai. The cheapest choice would be the Blu Emu car park, which is located slightly further away from the international terminal.

If you still wish to be closer to the terminals, the P7 car park is here for you, as it is located only 5 minutes away from the terminals. This will, however, cost you almost twice as much as the Blue Emu, and might not be a good choice if you plan to stick around for a longer period.
